A large group of clowns is coming to the Fertile Ground Festival in Portland this year, but there’s no need to be scared. These talented actors, all trained at the Dell’Arte School of Physical Theatre, are here to delight, and inspire, and, most importantly, make you laugh. Make the most of your time and money this year at Fertile Ground by joining three companies for three acts in one jam-packed evening. “Mom?”: A Comedy of Mourners begins with a mysterious trunk sitting on the peak of a mountain at the end of the universe. Out of the trunk come the clown siblings Victoria, Frank, and Mango. They have brought with them the ashes of their dear, departed mother whose last wish was to be scattered across the void. The show is filled with acrobatics, slapstick and mischievous antics – all for dear, old Mom. While clinging desperately to their memories, the three siblings cling to each other, literally, as they teeter on the edge their tiny stage, surrounded by the vacuum of space. Tripping, falling, and tumbling through the stages of grief, the clowns make a giant, ashy mess. “Mom?” is written, directed, and performed by Jeff Desautels, Laura Loy and Anna Sell, otherwise known as Box of Clowns. Behind the sheer curtain of a Victorian apartment, two chaste lovers slowly unravel their secrets. La Fenêtre (The Window), is a passage of moments like opening a black and white photo album with characters that are familiar but of another time. The butler, Sanderson, passionate but contained, desperately attempts to tell his mistress, Aurora his deepest desires. Through subtle gesticulation, cups of tea and poorly written letters, Sanderson will, at any cost, win his lady. La Fenêtre is a clown play about love and all the difficulties it presents. La Fenêtre is written, directed and performed by Emily Newton and Darci Fulcher, members of The Defenestrators. Perpetual Wednesday concerns a struggling magician and his sidekick who discover they have been cursed with the gift of immortality. While bumbling through time our incompetent duo find themselves confronted by some of mankind’s greatest challenges and uncover the meaning of life. Anthony Arnista and Jacob Trillo write, direct and perform Perpetual Wednesday under the name White Collar Crimes. “Mom?”: A Comedy of Mourners by Box of Clowns, La Fenêtre by The Defenestrators, and Perpetual Wednesday by White Collar Crimes, are playing at the Friendly House Community Center at 1737 NW 26th Ave in Portland, Oregon. Opening Friday, January 23rd at 9:30 PM. There are no preview performances. Show times are January 23rd and 30th at 9:30 PM, January 24th and 31st and 7 PM, and January 25th and February 1st at 8 PM. Save $4 and purchase tickets for all three acts, the “Combo Package”, for $18/$14 students and seniors. Tickets may be purchased online by selecting “COMBO PACKAGE” at: https://www.boxofficetickets.com/go/event?id=294573. Tickets may also be purchased or at the door.

On Sunday, January 25, 2015, join over 2,000 Portlanders for a New Year celebration of Japanese American traditions! Mochitsuki is, in its strictest sense, the pounding of rice into tasty, sticky rice cakes, or mochi, that symbolizes starting the New Year with a full belly in hopes of abundance in the year ahead. The 19th annual edition of Mochitsuki is a family-friendly festival offering a feast for the senses, with food, art, performances, and many exceptional hands-on cultural experiences for all ages. Over the years this celebration has grown in popularity, and this year Mochitsuki will move and now take place at Portland State University’s Smith Memorial Student Union.

The Throwaways is a personal exploration of the devastating impact of police brutality and mass incarceration on the black community told through the eyes of formerly incarcerated activist filmmaker Ira McKinley. With rawness, urgency and power, the film speaks directly to the national movement rising up to fight back against a wave of police killings of black people in America. Timely and provocative, The Throwaways is more just than an illumination of marginalized people at their weakest moments; it is a call to action, a story of directly engaging in the fight for justice. Co-director Bhawin Suchak will be present at the screening for a Q&A. $10 general admission $8 students

Kaleidoscope is a play about modern relationships that take strange shapes. What happens when we break the rules around love and sex? Tony and Christine are a 30-something Portland couple who meet Sarah and Brian in a coffeeshop one day. They begin a friendship that quickly develops into romance on all sides. As both couples are drawn deeper into this strange new arrangement, it seems they’ve found a way to rewrite the rules of modern relationships – until it’s revealed that one couple is not what they seem, and everyone must decide what they’ll do next. Kaleidoscope is by Naga Nataka, co-founder of the Missoula-based theatre group The Open Field Artists. This is his first play for Portland.

We tend to have specific ways we define “good” communication and conflict resolution (e.g., “I feel” statements, direct processing, assertive communication). However, if we do not incorporate intercultural communication (IC) concepts, unintentional misunderstandings may occur with the people we work with and in our relationships. We cannot always assume our standards are universal or right. Increasing our ability to navigate our differences allows us to truly connect with others. These types of skills are critical for real cultural competency and effectiveness in our work. This workshop will review key intercultural communication theories and concepts, and how to apply them in communication between adults. The concepts presented still apply in communication with children, however specific applications with children will not be discussed in the workshop. The importance of integrating intercultural communication work with social justice perspectives will also be emphasized. Who should attend? This workshop is designed for those working in “helping professions”, such as counselors, therapists, and educators, as well as for staff and leadership in schools, clinics, nonprofits and other organizational settings, and for community members seeking to improve their communication, work more effectively, and build better relationships with diverse populations. Date: Saturday, January 31, 2015 Time: 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Instructor: Cheryl Forster, Psy.D. Cost: $125 by 1/16, $150 after, includes 7 CEUs or PDUs, $50 students.

Tony and Christine are a 30-something Portland couple who meet Sarah and Brian in a coffeeshop one day. They begin a friendship that quickly develops into romance on all sides. As both couples are drawn deeper into this strange new arrangement, it seems they’ve found a way to rewrite the rules of modern relationships – until it’s revealed that one couple is not what they seem, and everyone must decide what they’ll do next. Kaleidoscope is by Naga Nataka, co-founder of the Missoula-based theatre group The Open Field Artists. This is his first play for Portland.

Come make Valentines with us! There are a lot of people in Portland who, in their own way, make the city better for biking. Many of them don’t get recognition and some don’t even realize how much they’re helping. This is why the Bicycle Transportation Alliance has a long-held tradition of giving handmade, personalized Valentines to these people. In previous years, we have sent valentines to Stakeholders on NE Multnomah Blvd, PBOT’s Signals and Street Lighting Department, and Franz Bakery drivers and mechanics. We don’t want to announce who, exactly, will be receiving BTA Valentines this year but if you come help us make them, you’ll find out!

Join the Art of Hosting for an Art of Participatory Leadership Intensive. The Art of Hosting practice was born out of the field of large group facilitation, where self-organization and “a leader in every seat” are prime organizing principles.

That’s what the Art of Participatory Leadership is all about. Why Attend?  • Broaden the skill set within your group; work more effectively and enjoyably together; engage teams, organizations and community stakeholders in meaningful conversations that promote resilience, belonging and innovation. • Enhance your skills and abilities to see and address difficult questions; transform conflict into creative cooperation; develop confidence; use wise process planning architectures for small and large scale initiatives; and host strategic conversations. • Connect with other leaders addressing crucially needed changes and explore how you can work more powerfully together.

A reading group for science fiction/fantasy works with themes and characters that provoke discussions about the concepts of gender and sexuality.The sci-fi/fantasy genre allows us to intimately experience worlds in which the rules/laws of our own world can be cast aside and different structures, (biological, technological, psychological, sociological, etc.) can be explored. Our intention is to read books that fall into the general category of science fiction or fantasy, expanding our selections as the group sees fit. Authors such as Octavia Butler, Ursula LeGuin, and James Tiptree are examples, but there are no set limitations on who we will read. The books we choose to read may leave us feeling positive and affirmed, but they may also leave us depressed or angry, hopefully they will always be thought-provoking, stimulating and challenging.

He is London's director of surface transport strategy and planning. According to LinkedIN, he is "responsible for the strategic planning of the £3 billion ($4.5 billion) annual investment and operational programs for Transport for London Surface Transport, covering London's road network, traffic management, bus priority, walking, and the public realm, cycling, road safety, freight, travel behavior change and the river." As director of the city's "Better Routes and Places" program, he rethought London's roadways and reinvented them as places -- not just thoroughfares. London has a lot of things that Portland doesn't: congestion pricing, cycle superhighways, bike share, a mayor who bikes to work! It's time to get familiar with London's cycling program because this is your chance to go on a bike ride with Mr. Plowden and chat with him about it over a beer. In collaboration with Young Professionals in Transportation, we will be hosting a ride and happy hour with Mr. Plowden on February 19th. Velo Cult has offered our members $1 off draft beer purchases so don't forget a valid membership card. Not a member? Join today.

Not a fan of the past, Tommy barely keeps his ex-wife and kids at arms length. One night he offers a helping hand to Aimee, a young woman in distress, a choice which fills both their lives with unexpected promise.

Tommy has been renting a room in his uncle’s house for a few years, doing odd-jobs and trying get-rich-quick schemes with his buddy, Doc. Not a fan of the past, Tommy barely keeps his ex-wife and kids at arms length. One night he offers a helping hand to Aimee, a young woman in distress, a choice which fills both their lives with unexpected promise. But unforeseen evil lurks around the corner and they soon find that their pasts won't let go so easily. Conor McPherson’s THE NIGHT ALIVE is a joyous, funny, terrifying and amazing new work by an author known for amazing works.

Be an Agent of Change: Registration open for Agent of Change Sustainable Leadership Training starting on February 23!

For information or to reserve your space, contact Erica DeJong at 503-227-2315 or erica@earthleaders.org. Learn more about the Center: www.earthleaders.org. DESCRIPTION: Join the growing network of over 950 Portlanders who have completed the How to Be an Agent of Change training, which was developed by veteran change agents Jeanne and Dick Roy.* This sustainable leadership training imparts a proven framework for advancing sustainability or ecological awareness in a chosen “circle of influence” (workplace, neighborhood, school, etc.). During the training, you select a circle of influence and develop a vision to make your circle more sustainable. The facilitators give you tested tools and strategies to develop a project and take first steps to realize your vision. Participants collaborate and consult with one another throughout the process. Some project examples include: starting a neighborhood kitchen equipment and tool library, organizing a non-curbside recycling system at work, or forming a nature club at your child’s elementary school. After completion, trained Agents become part of the Agent of Change Network, which offers ongoing project support through events, additional trainings, and networking opportunities, all at no cost. *Jeanne and Dick Roy, Co-Directors of the Center for Earth Leadership, are co-founders of the Center, the Northwest Earth Institute, and the Oregon Natural Step Network, three Portland-based nonprofits promoting sustainable practices and ecological awareness.

A reading group for science fiction/fantasy works with themes and characters that provoke discussions about the concepts of gender and sexuality.The sci-fi/fantasy genre allows us to intimately experience worlds in which the rules/laws of our own world can be cast aside and different structures, (biological, technological, psychological, sociological, etc.) can be explored. Our intention is to read books that fall into the general category of science fiction or fantasy, expanding our selections as the group sees fit. Authors such as Octavia Butler, Ursula LeGuin, and James Tiptree are examples, but there are no set limitations on who we will read. The books we choose to read may leave us feeling positive and affirmed, but they may also leave us depressed or angry, hopefully they will always be thought-provoking, stimulating and challenging.

Abby and Zack are newlyweds subletting an apartment in the Belleville area of Paris. She’s a yoga instructor and he’s a Doctor Without Borders. Their life is idyllic, if not especially noteworthy. That is until Abby walks in on Zack with his pants literally around his ankles. As she starts pulling at little threads having to do with how Zack spends his day, BELLEVILLE builds toward a climax that asks if we can ever truly know another person. This sexy, funny, scary, and tense pseudo-thriller from one of America's hottest new playwrights will unnerve as quickly as it entertains.

Portland Revels marks its 20th annual Christmas Revels with a new production set in 17th century London during the Caroline era. The time of Charles I of England and the Three Musketeers will come vividly to life through period music, dance, costumes and European traditions in this holiday celebration from veteran Revels scriptwriter Gray Eubank. Beginning in the Tower of London in 2014, the Christmas Revels Keep Magic follows a young teen who, after being transported back in time, meets Henry Percy the Wizard Earl, and Morley, a resourceful prankster. Bruce Hostetler directs and Robert Lockwood is the musical director, with a cast featuring Tobias Andersen and Burl Ross. Christmas Revels is a popular form of seasonal production that features traditional dances, music and songs in celebration of the winter solstice. Familiar highlights of the Portland Revels’ annual event include mumming, the medieval Abbots Bromley Horn dance, and the central showpiece, the Lord of the Dance.

This practice helps move energy along the spine, stimulates the endocrine system, decreases stress and eliminates toxins.
